First, if I have posted this question to the wrong forum, my apologies.

Using this Google conversion page http://www.google.com/gwt/n I can format my UBB message board to make the format more mobile friendly however this does not then allow for someone to Log On or Register. The data input blocks don't show any longer.

Is there a way to make the UBB message board either do that with that conversion, or some other way to make the UBB message board more mobile device friendly?

Thank you in advance for any guidance or suggestions.

In short, there is no method of having a mobile friendly version of UBB.Threads at the current time; the administration has indicated that we'll eventually have tapatalk support but indications on when this will happen haven't been divulged.

The amount of users on mobile devices continues to grow, while non-mobile continues to decline. Eventually, mobile will surpass non-mobile. (see the graph below).

I'm getting more and more users asking for a responsive design.

The wait for an upgrade has been painful to say the least. (dead horse, I know)

When? When are we going to get an upgrade? Please give us some hope.

I also emailed UBB directly in hopes of getting an answer (in case the man isn't reading this post).

Myself I'd love to have mobile support ASAP, I use Tapatalk as my primary method of checking several message boards from my tablet

Are you still looking at Tapatalk as an option? All of the major players have it now, even PHPBB...

Is releasing a mobile friendly theme in "two months" still accurate (meaning this month)? It is already after Thanksgiving, and I haven't heard anything new on it. From what I've seen in other posts, it looks like 7.5.8 was scheduled to be release month, but UBB is still looking for testers. And the mobile friendly theme isn't supposed to be released until 7.6. So what's the current timeline?

Glad to see you're working on it. We all know the bits and bytes sometimes don't always mesh though. Any timeframe on 7.6? I was really looking forward to mobile support.

Thx

i'd rather not put a timeframe on mobile theme.

there is a lot of cleanup of .tpl files involved ( much needed in general ) and December is pretty much shot for any development with the holidays etc.

but it is the next project on tap

Any progress/update on this?

You mentioned cleanup of the .tpl files.... will that affect the base site as well?

Hi Folks,

As you probably know on the 21st of April Google will be releasing an update that is going to penalise sites that are not fully mobile responsive. When we run our site tests through Google Webmaster tools we are getting a hosts of problems coming from our UBB forum which doesn't pass the mobile-friendly test. Most problems are with the UBB registration and login pages.

Can you advise if there will be a mobile friendly update before 21st April?

Thanks heaps.

An adaptive design is in the works for the next build; a deadline date however is not set in stone.
